Picked this truck up at auction. It is pretty neat. Got a good bit of modifications done to it to incorporate the flatbed. Uses all the original winch parts except for the platform to lay it down flat. Tank was moved to the passengers side and the control panel was laid down flat.

Truck has been pretty well used and some changes have been made as far as under the hood as well.

Has a NTC300 that has been swapped in place of the NTC400. It has ESN #11296767 with cpl 631 shows it is a Big Cam 3 unit with 15.5:1 pistons. Has a Big Cam 1 oil pan and oil pump on it. Still has the CAT 7155 transmission. Radiator appears to be pretty new rebuild as well. Interior is pretty well stock except for the air ride seat.

Equipped with 11R24.5s all the way around with aluminum front wheels.

Truck has been converted to solely 12v with a gear reduction starter.

The bed is pretty heavy built and looks to be a military modification of something. Truck was built by Oshkosh Equipment before going to a power company


Has a few bugs to work out with the guages and it has a transmission leak from the O ring on the crackshaft that seals the bellhousing over it. Not a small job but easy enough to get done.

The way it's set up, I kind of expected to see gin poles. Or at least provisions for them. Especially with it being an oil field truck.
